Wildfire smoke advisory issued for Fort St. John and surrounding areas

The advisory comes after concentrated forest fire smokes continues to spread and is expected to vary widely as winds and fire behaviour change.

“Persons with chronic underlying medical conditions should postpone strenuous exercise until the advisory is lifted,” the advisory reads. “If you are experiencing symptoms such as continuing eye or throat irritation, chest discomfort, shortness of breath, coughing or wheezing, follow the advice of your health care provider, particularly if you are elderly, have asthma, hay fever, breathing or lung conditions or if you react strongly to smoke.

The City of Prince George’s Clean Air Bylaw currently prohibits all open burning, including backyard burning and land clearing burning.
